Six people, including three teenagers, were shot after an argument led to gunfire Tuesday night in Dallas, police say.

At about 9 p.m., Dallas Police were called to a shooting on the 3000 block of South Lancaster Road though police later learned the victims were shot more than six miles away on the 8200 block of Willoughby Boulevard near Danieldale Park.

According to police, six people got into an argument with at least two other people who ended up shooting at them.

Dallas Police said six people were hospitalized and that two of the victims, two unidentified men, were taken by ambulance. The other four victims were also hospitalized but were not taken there in an ambulance.

The victims include a 37-year-old woman, a 14-year-old boy, a 15-year-old girl, and an 18-year-old man. The ages of the other two men were not provided by police. Dallas police said all of the victims were in stable condition.

Neighbors who live off by Willoughby Bouvelard are reporting damages to their cars and property from the gunfire. Ciera French said she was in her car when she noticed the group arguing. She went inside to her home about two minutes before the shooting unfolded.

"They shot through my driver’s window," French said. "I don’t know if they were right there, but at the angle that the bullet went through, if I was sitting in the car a little longer…the investigator said I would have been DOA."

French said the damages are difficult to deal with, but she is more concerned about her children.

"My kids were afraid. My son, he was very, very shaken up. He’s four. He’s like, oh mommy, are you okay? I was going to come save you from the bad guys. I’m like, you can’t. It’s sad, because the kids had to go through the thought process of like, oh I could have lost my mom right now," she said. "I don’t like how irresponsible the situation was, because y’all could have hurt a lot of people, taken a lot of things from a lot of people. Just over a mere fight or argument that probably wasn’t even important, you know?"

Teresa Jimenez lives next door. Along with her family's cars, her home sustained damages as well.

"I saw the [car] windows cracked and everything. By that time, I didn’t see the [home] window. So when my husband came out, he goes…hey, did you see the window? I said, no. I ran inside and that’s when I saw the restroom mirror all cracked up," Jimenez recalled. "I thank God that nobody was in that room at that time, because my granddaughters…always are with me in that room, jumping on the bed. My bed is just right here right in front of the door."

As of this writing, police have not released any other details in the investigation, including what sparked the argument or how many people were involved in the shooting.

No suspects have been identified and police have not announced any arrests.
